BEAUTY LOOKS OF THE WEEK
Lucky charm nails and red-head supremacy: Dua Lipa, Barbie Ferreira and Lady Gaga feature in this week’s beauty round-up
Barbie Ferreira’s red-head supremacy
When it comes to bold and statement looks, none are doing it quite like Barbie Ferreira. In a recently shared selfie, the Euphoria star radiates attitude from her tousled Kim Possible-esque hair — notably longer than her famed blunt bob. With her lids heavily doused with sparkling cyan hues, Barbie contrasts her hot and fiery locks with a cool-toned frosty makeup look. Keeping the base subtle with barely-there brush strokes, the look is tied together with a neutral rose lip. Proving once again that there is no colour on earth that she doesn’t suit, Barbie kicks off this weeks beauty round-up with a much deserved applause.
Dua Lipa’s lucky charms
If we had to hedge our bets on an upcoming trend for 2022, nail charms would be at the top of our list. With extravagant nail art making a resurgence since the infamous Y2K era, it appears that nail charms are the added spice we needed to keep the concept in fashion. Showing off yet another funky set from everyone’s most desired nail tech Nails By Mei, Dua Lipa pictures her multi coloured tips, with more jewels and charms than a Claire’s accessories. Whether the charm trend stays or falls back into the 90s, we’ll be taking this picture to our nail shops asap just in case.
FKA Twigs’ birthday beauty
Since the release of her “Caprisongs” mixtape, FKA Twigs has made it her business to feed off of the positive energy it emanated — and it shows. Posting candids from her birthday party three days ago, the artist glows from her bleached cork-screw curls all the way down to her gem-studded smile. Keeping a natural and feathered brow, her lids are smoked over with a deep bronze shimmer, which compliments the champagne shimmer of her cheek and brow bones. Wearing chunky gold drop earrings, FKA saves the diamond sparkles for her teeth as she smiles in front of her birthday cake. Out of the hair, the face, the sexy dress and the buttery-smooth icing, we can’t quite decide what we want to have first.
Kim Kardashian contoured in a corset
There is nothing on this planet we find more humbling than to take a little scroll down the Instagram profile of Kim Kardashian. Promoting another collaboration with Jeff Leatham for her fragrance line, Kim announces a new caramel orchid scent by sliding into a sheer caramel corset, naturally. In the name of consistency, Kim’s flawless makeup is flushed with soft neutral and mocha hues, which melt perfectly into her skin tone. Though a subtle shade, her lined lips are pulled into focus with their slick matte finish — a nod to the timeless glamour of the 90s. Pushing back her jet black locks, The Kardashians mogul proves once again that her attention to beauty looks is of quintessential standards.
Lady Gaga is a woman of many wigs
Having spoken very openly about the taxing effects of her recent role as Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci, it appears the singer-turned-actress is getting back to being gaga with full force. Sharing a snap of her ash-coloured up do, Lady Gaga serves The Grinch’s wife vibes with a feathered hem of Gatsby glamour. Adopting a dewy glam, she elongates the eyes with a smokey flick, while the base is flushed with peach undertones, making for the perfect effortless visage. Included in the snapshot are multiple mannequin heads styling her signature blonde shades. We don’t know about you, but we need a full-on tour of her dressing room.
